    1. The MLS or Multiple Listing Service is a closed database of properties for sale that can only be edited and viewed by licensed real estate agents.
    2. Even now the vast majority of homes sold in the U.S. are listed on the MLS. The MLS is how real estate agents alert other agents that a property is for sale, and it is the primary way that agents find a property to show to prospective buyers.
    3. Traditionally when a seller engages an agent to sell property, the agent hired would have the seller sign an agreement to pay 6% (or more!) in commission when the property sold. The agent hired (or listing agent) would then add the property to the MLS alerting other agents in the area that the property was for sale. Typically the listing agent also alerted other agents in the area that he/she would split the 6% commission with them should they bring a buyer and consummate a transaction.
    4. Traditionally a seller would pay 6% with 3% going to the listing agent and 3% going to the buyer's agent. At our listing agents work for a flat, upfront fee rather than a commission, thereby allowing us to provide our sellers with marketing power of the MLS at half the cost. (The entire commission sellers might pay in commission by utilizing our MLS package goes directly to the buyer's agent.)
